Skin Phillips on the trick, from Transworld’s “Our Favorite Covers Of 2013 And The Stories Behind Them” (2013):
“This backside 50-50 of Jim Greco was shot during Deathwish’s Skate & Create. Most of our days had been mapped out in some of the city’s landmarks, Jim mentioned to me that he had a couple of things he wanted to skate in Chinatown. So at bird’s fart, we meet Jim in Chinatown, the first day we get the footplant in front of the temple and the next day this on the parking hut. Jim turned up in a suspicious looking van and unloads an 8×4, shopping trolley, some 2x4s and before you can say Jeremy Klien, we have two sweet morning missions in the bag.”
